My name is Mark Smith and I started taking pictures at the ripe young age of eight! I have three grown children and 5 grandchildren, who have all endured being my subjects when I was practicing my skills but also called upon me for senior, wedding and headshot photography when needed. I taught photography at the Community College of Aurora for over 20 years and was asked by staff and students for senior and wedding photography as well. I have a Bachelor of Science in Professional Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology and a Masters in Humanities from CU Denver. My main subjects have always been people but fifteen years ago, I met a wonderful woman who introduced me to international travel (and shares my passion for photography) so I’ve added travel photography to the list.
